  • Running for Office (Led by VoteRunLead.org) – For those interested in running for local and state office, campaigning as a pro-women candidate, and building coalitions.
  • Campaign Management (Led by Wellstone) – For those interested in leading political campaigns, especially at local and state levels.
  • Grassroots Organizing (Led by Midwest Academy) – For those interested in leading issue-based targeted campaigns, identifying sources of power in order to create change, learning about recruitment, and organizing across constituencies.
  • Leadership (Led by Bossed Up) – For those interested in learning strategies, skills, and confidence building in order to lead groups focusing on recruitment, public speaking, and team building. 
  • Entrepreneurship (Led by BRAVA Investments) – For those interested in starting a company, pitching your idea, seeking funding, and harnessing the entrepreneurial spirit for social good.
